Live match day reports have it that Arsene Wenger was confronted by an angry fan, believed to be an Arsenal supporter, towards the end of his side’s defeat to Southampton.
The supporter was hauled away by two stewards after he managed to get right in front of Wenger and assistant manager Steve Bould and was later arrested by police.
Southampton believes the man was an Arsenal fan who had bought a ticket amongst the home supporters.
Wenger claimed afterwards that it was a Southampton fan and that he did not hear what was shouted at him.
But the fan, wearing a purple hoody, jeans and white trainers, clearly gesticulated at Wenger and Bould as they sat in the away dugout at St Mary’s.
The pair waved him away before he was grabbed by the stewards and escorted down the St Mary’s tunnel.
Southampton were last night reviewing CCTV footage of the incident, which occurred in the final 10 minutes of the game, and are prepared to take the severest action against the supporter.
It was a young boy,’ Wenger said. ‘I think he was Southampton fan. He was not aggressive at all. I don’t think he said anything.’
